Rough and Rugged, that is the perfect title for this volume of The Notorious Devils MC series. “Dirty” Johnny Williams is exactly that, rough and rugged. He has not had anything soft and sweet in his life. He most definitely earned the road name “Dirty”. But there is another side to this rugged man, a side cloaked in fierce loyalty, a side that wants to protect and love. A side he was convinced he was incapable of, despite the longing he felt every time he was around the children of his brothers in the Notorious Devils Motorcycle Club.
Hattie lived a decent life, she was a bit naive about the world around her, who was loyal to her and who she could trust. But the one person who everyone else thought was going to hurt her and ruin her life was the person who was there when those she trusted turned on her. Johnny brought out a side in her that she didn’t know existed. A side of strength and perseverance.
Johnny and Hattie are the most unlikely couple. Hattie is nineteen and just starting out in life. She hasn’t experienced much and is a bit naïve. Johnny is thirty and has experienced too much in his life. He has seen and done things that most people will never experience. Fate brought them together for one fateful night three years earlier, and fate has brought them back to each other now. Will they be able to be the opposing forces for each other to bring balance to each other’s lives? Or are their worlds just never meant to be together?
This story had me sitting on the edge of my seat. There was suspense, hot steamy romance, action and lots of filthy talk. Ms. Faiman turned the heat way up on this novel. You will most definitely need a cold drink and a fan handy while reading this story. There were times I was so engrossed in this book that time slipped away and I didn’t even realize how long I had been reading or how late I stayed up for just one more paragraph, one more scene, one more chapter. I love that other characters from earlier volumes of the ND series showed up in this volume, it was great catching up with them once more. Ms. Faiman has also woven into this series a story line that crosses over with her Russian Bratva series. If you read them all in release order, you will see the seamless crossover and how this storyline only enhances both series.
Rough and Rugged is another 5-star book from Hayley Faiman.
